Pedestrian critically injured after being struck by a vehicle

For many New Jersey residents, walking is not only an economical source of transportation, but also very healthy and a great way to stay in shape. These days, pedestrians face many dangers that are lurking on and around crowded roadways. Drivers are subjected to an abundance of distractions that can take focus off of the road. Distracted and/or impaired drivers endanger the lives of all those around them, especially pedestrians. According to recent statistics, a pedestrian dies as a result of being struck by a vehicle every 1.6 hours.

A recent accident in Garfield left a pedestrian critically injured and resulted in the arrest of an allegedly impaired driver. Police were called to the scene of a reported accident during the evening hours on a recent Saturday night. Officers arrived to find an injured man lying in the street, reports say.

Authorities say the injured man was attempting to cross the street and was struck by a vehicle. The man was taken to a local medical center for treatment of critical injuries. The driver of the vehicle was arrested and charged with DWI and assault by auto.

Roadways and sidewalks are becoming increasingly crowded as populations rise across the state of New Jersey. With pedestrians and vehicles in such close proximity, accidents are inevitable. Any New Jersey resident that has been struck by a vehicle and suffered injuries could greatly benefit by seeking the services of a skilled and knowledgeable attorney. A successful claim could result in much-needed compensation to offset mounting medical expenses and other accumulated damages.
